Providing Answers to Medical Marijuana Cultivators, Municipalities and Employers
As the medical and recreational marijuana industry continues to expand in the Northeast, our attorneys have helped marijuana cultivators, dispensaries, municipalities and employers contend with respecting certified patients’ rights while balancing workplace safety issues.
Our Corporate and Land Use attorneys have assisted Connecticut marijuana growers with regulatory issues and facility siting, as well as corporate governance, corporate structuring, tax issues and protection of clients’ intellectual property interests. As communities have begun considering their response to the expansion of the industry, we have consulted with municipal and economic development professionals and lectured before trade associations on municipal regulations, zoning considerations that impact the siting of cultivation and dispensing facilities, and review of federal law as it affects all municipalities participating in this industry.
In addition, numerous employers that have robust safety and health programs and engage in post hire drug and alcohol testing and drug screening for safety sensitive jobs have consulted with our Labor and Employment attorneys. We guide employers on the legal implications of employee medical marijuana use and how to navigate the balance of state and federal laws.
